At Templestowe College we believe that the best way to decide if this school is right for you is to have an individual discussion with us where we talk about what you and your family want from your child's education. This will include a tour of the school where you can see our learning community in operation rather than a special program conducted on an Open Day.

The enrolling of students from Grade 6 is jointly managed with the local primary schools, following statewide procedures. Parents are strongly encouraged to contact and visit the school before making an enrolment decision. For other levels, enrolments are managed by the Principal Class. 

We conduct our tours during the week commencing at 9am and running for approximately 1.5 hours. The tours take this amount of time as we have such large grounds to explore and so much to see.

Please check back shortly for new tour dates for 2019.

Please note that we do not conduct tours for students transferring from other secondary schools. For those who live in the TC Neighbourhood zone please call 98514605 to discuss a tour/interview.
